DESCRIPTION
witch (also and formerly known as Twitch.tv) is a live streaming video platform; introduced in June 2011 as a spin-off of fellow streaming platform Justin.tv, the site primarily focuses on video gaming, including playthroughs of video games by users, along with broadcasts of e-sports competitions. Content on the site can either be viewed live, or viewed on an on-demand basis.

The popularity of Twitch would eclipse that of its general-interest counterpart; by mid-2013, the website had amassed an average of 43 million viewers per month, and by February 2014, it was considered the fourth largest source of peak Internet traffic in the United States, Justin.tv's parent company was re-branded as Twitch Interactive to represent the shift in focus—Justin.tv would eventually be shut down in August 2014.
